Sunflowers and Crows

my coffee table

my seasonal tree

I spent Thursday and Friday rearranging and getting ready for Fall. I cleaned out our coat closet and downstairs closet where we keep off season clothes. I took 5 big bags to donate and some to my neighbor. I still have my thrift store stuff in the living room ugh!! I can't wait to get it all taken in ... I can only donate 14 items at a time. I'm still trying to keep our move in the back of my mind so I'll be ready if we find a house and have to start packing. It could be next week or next spring! Anyway, no need to hold onto stuff we don't need or old coats and clothes.

I took some pictures of some things I changed and I still want to add some yarrow to my tree so if anyone has a source for this let me know. I looked this weekend and most of the usual craft stores and didn't find it. Hobby Lobby has floral 50% off so if you need some mums for fall florals go now! Also, I got the cute little crow there too.

Lisa from Primitives from above made my little sign. I moved it from my bathroom.
my mom made these for me a long time ago, not very prim but I just can't part with them for sentimental reasons

my kitchen counter top, I got this stichin' last fall and I have had this basket for awhile, I got it with a candle and painted the basket black.

my front door

a wall basket with some crows tucked inside

Have a great day!
